Free Spin Bonuses

Plenty of online casinos let you play their online slots for fun, and it’s a great way to pass the time or learn the rules of their features – but isn’t it a shame you can’t win real money when you’re playing for free?

With free spin bonuses, you are effectively given free money to spend on spinning the reels, with the chance to keep whatever you win.

It’s a no-risk cross between playing for fun and playing for real – but there are some things you should know.

First up, free spin bonuses often apply to a specific slots title, which might be a newly launched game the casino wants you to try, or their game of the month.

Or it might be part of a slots tournament where, rather than keeping your winnings, the players who ‘win’ the most from their free spins get a set amount of prize money instead.

Either way, it’s still free money, so you can’t grumble too much at the terms and conditions – and if you play for money anyway, you might find you fall in love with a new slot you wouldn’t normally have tried.


  • No risk and usually no need to have ever deposited into your account.
  • Chance to try new slots you might have missed.
  • Chance to try whole new casinos without paying in any money.


  • Might only apply on a specified slots title.
  • Usually strict ‘playthrough’ requirements (e.g. wager any winnings 40x before you can withdraw them).
  • Not as general as a no-deposit bonus that applies to table games too.

As always, read the terms and conditions – all of them – because the worst-case scenario is hitting a huge jackpot on a promo spin, then finding out it doesn’t count for some reason.
